Festool Hole saws whit centrotec!
« on: May 07, 2015, 06:40 AM »
well, i dont know if i,m am the only one who want to have this,

but today i make some holes whit my Protool Hole saw set,  they used the old lenox, dewalt, misc adaptor for the saws and its not so god imo, its easy that the holesaw stuck in the adaptor and if i then need to change to a different size then i need to have a big pipe wrench sometimes!  Bosch quick change adaptor is mutch better but.. hey its not Festool ingenerings :/...

who not have that on a centrotec style like the?  and its able to change the saholew from the centrotec bit like the drillbits ?

multicontruction hole saw set whit centrotec would be awesome!

thats was my ideas for today !   :)

These are the best hole drills available in Europe (to my opinion): Pro-Fit
Look at the videos and you'll understand why.
The Click & Drill Multi Purpose versions are the best.
Even a respectable drill company like Famag has adopted the system.
It's not Centrotec compatible but with large diameters Centrotec is not advisable.
Festoolian since 1998.

I don't. I watched it and saw a badly produced video mostly featuring people larking around, using computers and working in a warehouse. I saw nothing that explains to me why these are the best hole saws in Europe!

Oke, maybe the videos are not great and you don't have to believe me!
But do some research and you'll find out why.
- These drills stay sharp for a very long time.
- They don't smoke the wood because there are only 2, 3 or 4 carbide bits.
- The plug is easily removed without help from other tools.
- You can make a small hole larger by using two drills behind each other.
- They are available in diameters from Ø16-330 mm with almost every mm in between available (from 16-100 mm).
- They are reasonable "cheap" compared to the competition.
- They are available in long versions as well.
- They are available for stone (Diamond) and steel (Bi-Metal or Endura).
- Etc, etc.

I have used an similar design holesaw in Aust, don't remember the name, but it definitely is the best holesaw design ever. Drilling 2" holes in pine framing hit two 3" nails in the timber and didn't even notice until I pulled out the plug from the saw. They had both been cut off clean and the holesaw kept on cutting.

However I have broken a centre pilot drill relatively easily - still trying to work out how.

Scroll down a bit and watch the 4 shorter feature video's.  From your response I'm assuming you just watched that main video.

The pro-fit hole saws lock nice.
I found a kit whit 12 different sizes, 35 up to 133mm in a t-loc box, but it was expensive   [sad]

now i thinking maby the ordinary centrotec holder is to small to handle the torque from big hole saws? then why cant they make a centrotec XL holder.. then they can put centrotec on big auger drills, big holesaws .. big forster drills and make even more money  [cool] [tongue]

That's the fitting from a centrotec 8mm HSS bit:



Presumably the OP turned the hex down to 8mm round, and then used the grub screw to secure it.

I used a 8mm centrotec bit

All i did was put the hole was arbor in my drill backwards and used a file to turn it down to the correct size.
It took about 15mins its awesime i love it

Take note that the 10mm centrotec bit is also a 8mm sharft.

Cheers
